The USS Nimitz is cruising peacefully 200 miles off Pear Harbour when it is suddenly caught in a storm and is bathed in an unearthly green light. Almost immediately the seas are calm again. The reconnaissance photos taken after the storm to plot the position of the ship, show a blow-up of Pearl Harbour, circa 1941, with the battleship Arizona visible in the photo - this seems impossible; as the Arizona was sunk in the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour. It dawns on the officers that somehow they have moved back in time. Will the crew, with its awesome force, take the opportunity to destroy the Japanese fleet heading for the naval base? And if so, what will happen to the world as we know it?

Many years old now in the time that movies predicted some future. No high special effects but still a good movie with a lot of (to that time) action, thrilling and humor. Should be classified with all time great movies. Watch it but replace urself to that decade and u will enjoy this movie
